Access and Deaf Information

For 2021 and beyond, we have challenged ourselves to be the UK’s most welcoming and accessible festival, offering: a line-up that appeals to all ages and demographics; a site that is welcoming of those with seen and unseen disabilities; priority seating for older people; shuttle buses/porter services; BSL interpreting throughout; and our ‘I’m here alone’ scheme, whereby lone attendees can identify themselves by wearing a yellow wristband in order to more easily make new friends.

We are committed to improving our access provision for disabled, neuro-divergent and Deaf participants – as audience members, speakers and staff. We work with disabled, neuro-divergent and Deaf performers and interpreters to help us shape our programme and site plan each year, so that everything we schedule is accessible and inclusive.

A BSL interpreting service will be provided by fully qualified interpreters throughout the festival. BSL interpreted sessions will be added to the website closer to the event. Over the festival weekend, you can email primadonnafestival.access@gmail.com to be put directly in touch with our BSL team. 

Security and stewards are on hand across the festival site. They have been briefed to offer information, help and support. If you are unwell or require assistance, please approach a member of the Security and Stewarding Team who are clearly identifiable by their tabards/shirts.

The Primadonna festival is an outdoor event set in beautiful parkland. There is a paved path around the site, but please be aware that there can be areas with no solid pathways or hard ground.

It is important to be aware that during inclement weather some parts of the site may be difficult to navigate around. Please dress appropriately, and for all weather conditions.

Smoke machines, strobe lights, lasers, fireworks and other effects may be in use at this event. Anyone affected by these should bear this in mind.
